Cards Game

the reason for my absent through july was because i been shopping around for tools and materials so i would be able to remodel my kitchen since my brother and girlfriend moved out of my place, i had the entire place to myself. so far i haven't gotten much done, it wasn't as easy as i thought it would be. things just got in the way every time i got home from work, like i had events i needed to attend to, guests coming over that needed to be host... ~sigh.

the main story here is that i got back into playing card game, "magic: the gathering".
it all started when i took a break from life and turned on my ps3. i downloaded the title "magic: the gathering - duel of the plainwalker" and decided to give it a try since it was free because of the ps3 network hacking incident. i was hooked and surprised that the game kept it traditional feature like in the actual card game even tho it was being display virtually. it brought back so many memories, that i even took out my old deck of cards out.

my history with "magic: the gathering":
i do have experience playing mtg, but not expert enough to actual participate in a tournament. i started playing in my earlier years of college and entered in a few draft game during the time when "onslaught", "legions", and "scourge" set was still popular. i quit playing when "mirrodin" set was released, because the overwhelming change it was going through.

i just made a two color deck: white (planes) and black (swamp).
the purpose of this deck is to quick summon for angels into the battlefield. it mainly depends on the spell cards from swamp to bring out the angels, just think of it like the black spells are the engine and the angels are the firepower.main starts... Entomb (1mana), place angel to the graveyard. Play Exhume (2mana) or Zombify (4mana) to bring/put an angel in play from the graveyard.

i have Demonic Tutor to bring out Entomb, in case i didn't start out with it or later in game to get Buried Alive (3mana) to combo with Stitch Together (2mana) because of threshold.

angel of choice play first = any: Iona, Shield of Emeria for a quick win against a mono deck. Reya Dawnbringer to bring back an angel to play from graveyard each turn

the problem im having with this deck is the cards i start out with. if i end up having angels in my hand, i wont be able to summon it until i have enough mana (defeat the purpose of summoning quick angels). i need a card to be able to discard cards from my hand to put it in to the graveyard, so i added the enchantment "peace in mind".

here are pictures of the angels i have purchased, click to enlarge. i got them all in foil cause it makes searching a lot easier when playing.
"im charlie, and these are my angels".

$500.00 is the amount i spend on this deck, call me crazy all you want, but i think its worth it. anyways, i used coolstuffinc and starcitygames to get cards i needed to build a deck. they are reliable site.
